The link between poverty and justice may seem vague, but it's very real for many low income children and families.
Paying for a bike, some games and a bathing suit not only helps a boy enjoy summer, it also helps a mom rebuild a relationship with her son who just returned home from foster care.
Paying for car repairs not only helps a lonely teen in a treatment program finally see family, it also means they can participate in crucial counseling together so she can go back home sooner.
Paying for cell phone minutes not only helps a child in foster care speak to her dad, it also helps him remain bonded with his child and demonstrate affection.
One Can Help provides the missing resources
at-risk youth, foster children and underserved families
involved with DCF or the juvenile courts urgently need to improve difficult lives and build brighter futures.
OCH's unique mission is to provide the critical resources that address inequities and make better outcomes possible, because poverty, lack of opportunity and injustice go hand in hand.
One Can Help is a 501(c)3 providing assistance across MA.
Meaningful access to justice requires meaningful access to resources.
